Christmas Count

40 degrees and cloudy. Today I helped my friend Dennis with the Christmas bird count in our area. We were out for around seven hours and tallied about fifty different species. Notables for me were Peregrine Falcon, Merlin, Rough Legged Hawks, light and dark phase, lots of Bluebirds, hundreds if not thousands of Robins and a yellow rumped warbler.

I was not able to hike with Petey today, so hubby took him for a nice hike up to Cascade Lake Park. Hubby told me that Petey was super excited to be back up at that park, we tend to avoid it during hunting season.
